Solutions for Women and for those who love them
Do I need therapy?
Everyone goes through difficult challenges in life. While you may have been able to cope with the challenges you’ve encountered, it’s always a good idea to seek extra support when you need it. In fact, when you realize you need a helping hand, you’re taking responsibility by facing the challenges you encounter in life. Therapy will give you long-term benefits and the tools you need to overcome difficulties you encounter.
How can therapy help me?
There are many benefits in participating in therapy. As a therapist, I
can provide support and help you find relief for issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship problems. Counseling is extremely valuable in managing personal growth, relationships, and the many challenges faced in daily life. By applying therapy techniques, I can provide different perspectives on complicated problems and guide you to a solution.
Medication vs. Therapy
Medication cannot solve your mental and emotional problems alone. Therapy is needed in order to address the source of your distress and behavioral patterns. Check with your medical doctor and see what’s the best treatment for you.
What happens during therapy?
Therapy may be different depending on the goals for therapy and the needs of the person. Typically speaking, we will discuss the things that are currently happening in your life, things that happened in the past that are relevant to your issue, and review the gains we’ve had from the previous session. Ultimately, I want to help you bring what you’ve discovered or learned during therapy back into your daily life.
Will our conversations remain confidential?
Confidentiality is a key component of therapy. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else. By law, I cannot release your information without your written consent, except in the following situations:
- I have a strong and reasonable belief that there is past or present abuse, or neglect of children, adults, or elders.
- I believe that a client is in danger of harming herself or has threated to harm another person.
